FOX19 Follow Up: Animals found in Clifton Heights home up for adoption

CLIFTON HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) - Nearly two dozen animals removed by SPCA Cincinnati from a vacant residence in Clifton Heights in May will be available for adoption beginning Saturday, July 18 at 12:30 p.m.

A viewing of the animals will begin at noon.

The adoptions will take place at the SPCA Cincinnati Humane Center at 11900 Conrey Road in Sharonville.

On May 11, 2009, neighbors of a home in the 2500 block of Vestry Avenue called the police about a terrible stench coming from the property. SPCA officers discovered squalid living conditions and a total of 20 dogs, 2 birds and one cat. No owner could be found and the animals were filthy with a myriad of health problems.

SPCA's veterinary staff groomed, examined and administered medical care to the animals to get them ready for adoption.

All the animals, except the parakeets, have been spayed or neutered. Some of them have health conditions that will need ongoing veterinary care. Information will be provided.

A lottery system will be used if there is more than one person interested in the same animal. Adopters must complete a pre-adoption questionnaire before they are eligible to adopt.
